The 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival ended on Saturday May 28 with the consecration of the film by Swedish director Ruben Ostlund for “Triangle of Sadness” (Without filter). Song Kanh-Ho and Zar Amir Ebrahimi were crowned best actors. The Cannes Film Festival ends this Saturday, May 28 after an edition full of suspense. The jury, chaired by Vincent Lindon with alongside him the Anglo-American actress and director Rebecca Hall, Noomi Rapace, or the directors Asghar Farhadi, Ladj Ly and Joachim Trier, decided to reward with the Palme d’Or for the best film for “Triangle of Sadness” by Ruben Ostlund. The Swede made the Croisette explode with laughter with “Sans Filtre” (French title), a punk crossover of “Titanic” and “La Grande Bouffe” and acid satire of the ultra-rich. The film therefore succeeds “Titane” by Julia Ducournau, Palme d’Or gore with punk energy last year. Each of the films in this remarkable selection gave rise to fascinating and passionate discussions, enriching and exhausting, instinctive and thoughtful, but above all useful since our decisions were all obtained with a good majority – Vincent Lindon, president of the jury. By winning the Grand Prix, “Close” confirms the talent of the Belgian Lukas Dhont, to film adolescence, but on a subject, friendship and farewell to childhood, less strong than “Girl” (Camera gold in 2018), about a trans teenager, it was one of the favorite films for the ultimate trophy. Tied, “Stars at noon” by Claire Denis offers an atmospheric thriller about an American journalist stranded in Nicaragua. The Best Actor Award was given to Song Kang-ho, starring in the Japanese film “Les Bonnes Etoiles”, by Hirokazu Kore-eda and Best Actress Award to Iranian Zar Amir Ebrahimi, at the poster of the film “Holy Spider”, by Ali Abbasi.
